Alcorn State

Nice opener in reality that will give us some decent game competition as we prepare for the State, Troy, Bama run in September......

One of the more experienced FCS teams with a total of 14 selections on the All-SWAC Preseason First and Second teams. QB Noah Johnson was named the 2019 SWAC Preseason Offensive Player of the Year. In 2018 he led the Braves to a SWAC Championship title. In three seasons, Johnson ranks eighth all-time in school history in touchdown passes (30), ninth in passing yards (4,018) and 10th in rushing yards (1,867).

In 2018, he threw for 2,207 yards and 15 touchdowns, and rushed for 1,080 yards and 11 touchdowns. Johnson ranked third in the nation in rushing yards per carry (7.5) and 16th in completion percentage (.621).

Soloman Muhammad was tabbed the leagues’ 2019 Preseason Defensive Player of the Year after also being named a 2018 HBCU All-American and a 2018 SWAC All-Conference First-Team honoree.

He finished second on the team in tackles with 64 despite missing two games. He also wrapped up 4.0 sacks and 9.0 tackles for a loss. It came after a breakout year in 2017 where he notched 52 tackles in just seven games including 6.5 tackles for a loss, 2.0 sacks, two forced fumbles and an interception.

Only common opponent from 2018 was Jackson St. Alcorn beat them 24-3. Fred McNair is still head ball coach at Alcorn, brother of Steve. Hopson hired Alcorns OC from last season, Ryan Stanchek, our new OL coach.

It'd be one hell of a hoot if!

Re: Alcorn State

Since 1980, MEAC teams are 19-4 vs. the spread when facing opponents with Confederate Colonel mascots.

Re: Alcorn State
